He Only Takes the Best
God saw she was getting tired
and a cure was not to be
So he put his arms around her
and whispered, come with me
With tear filled eyes we watched her
Suffer and fade away
Although we loved her deeply
We could not make her stay
A golden heart stopped beating,
Hard working hands put to rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best
(I almost did not post this poem because I did not 
have the author's name to give credit for it. 
Someone gave this poem to my aunt and 
it was just so fitting; however, the author ran across my page and has told me the correct title of the poem is "Golden Heart" and it was written for her grandfather. This beautiful piece of writing belongs to Therese Williamson.) 

She lived her life with style, grace, and a vibrant personality, and left it with style, grace, and class fitting that of a princess.  She was such a tiny and fragile looking woman, but she was so very strong in spirit.  Looking at her in death she quite resembled a porcelain doll.  so beautiful, fragile, and special.  Her tiny little hands and beautiful high cheekbones.  I was with her when she took her last breath and while it was one of  the saddest moments of my life, it was also one of  most beautiful.  I have always had a fear of death, but after sharing that moment with my family, I don't fear it nearly as much.  She just simply took in that last breath, let it out, and began her eternal sleep.  She looked so at peace and she left knowing we all loved her so dearly.  Everyone had a chance to spend a few moments alone with her before the death and say whatever we wanted to say to her.  I told her how I felt so lucky.  She had always been more like a mother than a grandmother to me so I had the fortune of having two moms.  I told her my goal was to make homemade pimento cheese that would taste like hers.  I reminded her of the night we sat up all night watching goofy Jerry Lewis movies on TV and laughing til our stomachs hurt.
Sitting at the funeral, it just felt so strange not having her sitting beside me rattling peppermint candy papers and offering them to me. 
The night in December they light the luminaries at the cemetery will always be special to me now.  The first year they did that here my grandmother and I had been out shopping and just happened across it.  She LOVED it.  This year there is no way I will miss visiting her on that night.
We love and miss you, Grandbobbie!

This cap may seem out of place, but she loved her Atlanta Braves and watched them every chance possible.  Go braves!
